Some fizzy lifting drinks fall flat. (RIP, Surge, Orbitz, and Citra.)
Get a permanent buzz from The Fizzary, a new Mission soda emporium from Taylor’s Tonics (the folks behind Chai Cola and Maté Mojito soda).
The frenetic, Wonka-esque shop stocks more than 800 varieties from around the globe. Find obscure creations from established brands (who knew Reed’s ginger beer came in butterscotch?) and new concoctions like Joia, a medicinal line of fruit sodas in flavors like lime hibiscus clove.
A cooler (originally used for champagne) chills any pop in three to five minutes, giving you time to explore the candy selection (saltwater taffy in frosted cupcake, guava, and caramel apple, anyone?).
It’s the sugar rush of a lifetime.
The Fizzary, 2949 Mission Street, at 25th Street (877-368-4608 or fizzary.com).
